Hubby and son (11yrs) went too. Thursday night, sat in the piano bar. Was a great experience, not a rowdy crowd at all. Just fun loving. Would recommend Thursday night for kids 12+. Food and service were also great. Filet was superb.

The music of Doug Montgomery and then Branden and James sets up a great evening of drink, food, and entertainment. Specialty drinks overpriced - stick to standard. Innovative food offerings.

The restaurant was very expensive, so we ate tapas and vegetable dishes, which were delicious. The music in the piano bar was amazing and their margaritas were yummy.
